We’re delighted to have reached another milestone with Ecologi – we’ve planted over 20,000 trees! In addition to this, we’ve shared our impact report externally and launched a new initiative to plant even more trees in conjunction with our clients.
Since signing up with Ecologi in 2020, we’ve continuously funded tree planting and shorter-term renewable energy schemes in low-cost, high-impact locations around the world. Ecologi’s model works on a per-employee basis so as our agency grows, so does our positive impact on the environment.
We’re lucky to have an internal team of passionate volunteers who lead our impact strategy under three core pillars:
- CSR and sustainability
- Diversity and inclusion
You can find out more about their work and read our impact report here. The report outlines the impact the business had during the 2020 – 2021 financial year, covering social and environmental issues.
More recently, we’ve launched a new initiative which will see us committing to planting a tree for each client feedback survey that we receive so that we can make a meaningful impact not only on our planet but also on our client partnerships.
Speaking of our recent achievement, our people director Zoë Ogden said:
“This is an incredible milestone to have hit and I’m really proud to work for an agency that contributes towards a cause that will truly make a difference. Using business as a force for good is one of our core values and planting trees is just one way that we are proud to put this value into practice. Giving back in this way has been made possible through the support of Ecologi and I’d strongly encourage businesses to explore this scheme, or one that’s similar, to contribute towards a greener future.
To strengthen our efforts, our impact team leads a calendar of events that includes activities like sustainability clothes swaps and clothing bank donations. We’ve also committed to day-to-day changes, like switching all of our usual cleaning products to a more eco-friendly range.”
Our head of client success Alex Koujan added:
“Not only do we strive to make a meaningful impact on our planet but we are also committed to driving success for our clients. To further support our aspirations and to drive both purpose and performance, our latest initiative is to plant a tree for every client feedback survey that we receive via a form or a call. Planting 20,000 trees is truly impressive and I’m excited to see how many more we can plant in collaboration with our clients. The environment and our impact on it is something that is important to me, so on a personal level, I’m really pleased we are doing this.”
